Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone picture

Easter egg: On Disc 2, another way to get to the 7 deleted scenes. Follow the same previous listed steps of going through Diagon Alley to get your key, coins from Gringott's, and then your wand. Once you have your wand, back at the main menu, chose "Classrooms". Of the four classes, choose Potions. If you click on the mixing bowl, it will ask you to make three different potions, each requiring a combination of the ingredients of two test tubes. Note, these are the same potions that Snape asks Harry to list/name on the first day of class, testing him, and Harry doesn't know. You have to get all three to pass on to the keys. 1) How do you make the sleeping potion "Draught of Living Death"? Click on test tubes with Asphodel & Wormwood. 2) What two plants are also known as aconite? Click on Monkshood & Wolfsbane. 3) How do you cure a boil? Click on Snake fangs & Porcupine quills. Once you have done this successfully, you will be in the chamber of the keys. The steps from here are the same as mentioned previously.
